Subject: Not In the Public Domain
Youtube yanked this movie when I tried to upload. It's not in the Public Domain. Don't give these people a penny of money until they get their act together.

What a wonderful old classic. It scared the crap out of me when I was a kid. I still love watching it. How can you beat black and white, Vincent Price, appropriate music, and a creeped out mansion?

Subject: Filmed in 'Emergo'
I'd love to find a theater nearby that would show this film with the original Emergo scene that takes place during the "acid bath" scene.

Watching this movie on TV as a kid I always wondered what the deal was with Vincent Price reeling in the skeleton.

I later learned that William castle had inflated skeletons "float" over the audience on wires.

What a classic! I would LOVE to roam around in that beautiful old house all night and I'd even do it for only 10 thousand PENNIES!!! (After I removed the blood dripping from the ceiling & the vat of acid in the cellar)..

Vincent Price plays his signature role as the bad guy in this well-done movie.
